Moin Moin this how we greet in Hamburg and not Ciao,
Hamburg is not a carnival city at all, it’s bloody cold, grey and windy, even people are C O L D. That’s why it is called the cold north in Germany. It could easily be one of the kingdoms of the Game of Thrones.
This particular day we say Ciao and everything around here is Italian. And no, it isn’t because of the Italian week at LIDL or because Raffaella Carrà was in town, but the Venetian Carnival comes to Hamburg.
When you think about carnival in Europe, your mind goes to Venice. But it turns out Hamburg and Venice have one thing in common, plenty of water. An interesting fact is that Hamburg has more bridges than Venice.
February is the time for Bacchanalia, the time to drink and get lost in the pleasures of the flesh. It’s carnival, and because I did not make it to Rio de Janeiro this year I show you a bit of the Hamburger (am I talking about the Carnival from Hamburg or the hamburger food carnival?) carnival.
Which isn’t as spectacular as the one in Rio, but there was a thing that I loved and doesn’t fit (according to me) into the typical venetian carnival.
Oh I loved her, the way she walked, stood and smiled. It was all perfect I almost fell in love with her but I had to play it cool, I was with my parents and they couldn’t find out about my fetish.
Isn’t she adorable?
Anyway Germans can be very funny sometimes, although it is ridiculously cold out there they manage to still look good. Don’t you think?
In general Hamburg is full of surprises and sometimes the Cold North turns into the warm north. So stick with us and find out many other interesting things about Hamburg. For more info click HERE
